Racism and Resilience in Oregon's Past & Future

Please join us for a free discussion entitled "Race and Place: Racism and Resilience in Oregon's Past & Future" hosted by Friends of Trees in cooperation with Oregon Humanities statewide Conversation Project.

Friends of Trees recognizes that not everyone has equal access to the benefit of trees. Who has access to trees and their benefits, and the systems that set up these inequities are very much related to our state-wide history. We can't undo that history, but we can do better moving forward, together. Please join us and learn more with our staff, volunteers, and community members.

Oregonians envision a future that includes communities built on values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. At the same time, we live in a society that marginalizes and excludes people of color. Facilitators Anita Yap and Traci Price will lead participants in a conversation that looks at how Oregon’s history of racism influences our present and asks, How can understanding historic and current impacts of racism in Oregon contribute to our sense of place and vision of the future? How can diversity and inclusion create thriving communities?
